Here at YWAM Maui, we strive to live by the truth of the Word and the power of the Holy Spirit. Without God’s Absolute Truth as revealed to us in the Bible, we would just be like boats floating on a sea of relativity with nothing to anchor us. Without the Holy Spirit, we would be powerless to make God known and to influence our world. But holding these together is a powerful combination.
In our YWAM training, we strongly emphasize the Biblical Christian Worldview as integral to discipleship. Our goal is to build foundations for the next generation in both the written Word and the Living Word. In Luke 6:46-49, Jesus tells of the man who built his house on a solid foundation, “And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built.” (KJV). If our foundation is firmly rooted in Christ and in the scriptures, we will not be shaken when the storms of life ‘should threaten to undo us.’
Occasionally, I get the opportunity to teach on the Christian Worldview in other locations. This week I am at the University of the Nations in Kona, Hawaii teaching in the Crossroads Discipleship Training School. This DTS is geared for those who are 30 years old and up. There are about 30 students in this school ranging in age from 28 to 74 years old from 10 different nations. As I’m used to speaking to millenials, I’m looking forward to the classroom dynamics of teaching those with more life experience.
